Lions Working Together

Lion Ian Skinner (on left) hands over the Club Presidency to Lion Chris Rignall on 25th June 2011Lions International was founded in 1917, and has since grown into the largest voluntary community service organisation in the World.

Whilst each Lions club gives priority to the needs of its local Community, the Lions organisation is uniquely placed to provide urgent assistance nationally or internationally at times of need, such as earthquakes or flooding.

Lions clubs can also work together to raise money for local or national charities.
